Democrats in Connecticut stomp on the First Amendment in their anti-Catholic crusade

In the Connecticut State Legislature there was a bill introduced by Democratic Party. This bill required only Catholic Churches in Connecticut to have independent committees monitoring and allocating church finances. The Democrats claim this is due to a recent event in which a Catholic priest stole $1.4 million dollars from a church in Connecticut.

The good people in Connecticut spoke against this pending legislation which caused the bill to fail. However the Democrats are not one to be swayed by the will of the people or the law of the land.

The state of Connecticut (Democratic Party majority) is now going after the Catholic diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut. The claim is when the Catholic diocese spent over $2,000 to rent buses to take people to Hartford to express their displeasure towards that pending legislation; it then made the diocese a lobbyist organization.

Which is total nonsense as lobbyist are traditionally hired to act on behalf of a person or group. Here the group acted on their own behalf without pay. This latest attempt by the heathens in the Democratic Party to attack the Roman Catholic Church is a clear affront to the First Amendment of The United States Constitution, which reads:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This amendment is being violated on three levels:

1 "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise there of...."
2 "freedom of speech"
3 "the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

The Democrats are out to consolidate their take over of the USA by eliminating conservative talk radio, hence their attacks on Rush Limbaugh and promotion of the Fairness Doctrine. They need to silence the few conservative news outlets, thus their attack upon Rupert Murdoch. Now the Catholic Church must be tackled for their pro-life and pro marriage as only being between a man and a woman stance.

When the Nazi's were eliminating one group after another, people remained silent. Rev. Martin Noemiler wrote:

"When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I was not a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out"

Will you be the last person standing due to your silence? We must oppose these leftist Democrats wherever they attempt to silence those who oppose their oppressive ideology.
